Neverending Carols ....

Post by Jae » Sun Dec 03, 2017 1:59 pm

I don't know if we can keep this going till Christmas but here goes .....

I'll start with a Christmas Carol and the next person posts another which must include ONE WORD from the Title of the last carol, in the Title of the new/next one.

So if I post


'Deck the halls with boughs of holly ...'


the next person might post


'The holly and the ivy ...'




Don't worry if you can't manage to do a link to the actual carol ... they are nice to listen to ... but really just the title will do ... we can always sing them ourselves :thumbs: :sing2:
In the triumph of prayer
Twofold is the spell.
With the folding of hands
There's a spreading of wings
And the soul's lifted up to invisible lands
And ineffable peace .....

Ernest - that doesn't follow the rules! (See the first post in the thread.)

Going back to Pam's 'God Rest Ye Merry. Gentlemen', which was very hard...

On Christmas Night All Christians Sing (I'm allowed a plural, aren't I? :redface: )

(Or 'The Sussex Carol' if you want more choice! :devil: )

Lowering the tone a little - Angels, angels everywhere which was in my son's preschool nativity 'Wriggly Nativity' at the weekend

(this is a random preschool video from youtube, not ours).

Angels We Have Heard On High

[ETA - I think I responded to Angels, Angels Everywhere and didn't see the ones that came after it - sorry for breaking the sequence].

Come on people! We're losing the train here. The instructions from Jae's opening post were as follows:
Jae wrote:I'll start with a Christmas Carol and the next person posts another which must include ONE WORD from the Title of the last carol, in the Title of the new/next one.

So if I post


'Deck the halls with boughs of holly ...'


the next person might post


'The holly and the ivy ...'
So. going back to the last carol that followed the rules, which was "Angels We Have Heard on High" I will follow with:

I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day



Now that we're getting to the more obscure ones, you might find this list to be quite useful. :wink:

I can hear God chuckling ! :laugh: Thanks for the list Caroline that's really helpful :thumbs:

Ok ... slightly irregular as it's not a carol but to get us back on track .....

''Every time a bell rings an angel gets their wings''


Posted with love especially for anyone finding their way to our community who is praying for a fresh start this Christmas :hug:
